      On Sunday night, a 3-year-old boy slipped away from a family picnic and was discovered a few minutes later lying face down in a hot tub in the 13500 block of Tallow Glen Lane in northwest Harris County, said Harris County precinct 4 constable spokesman Mark Herman. Jacob Simper died at an area hospital. The medical examiner ruled his death an accidental drowning.

      HOUSTON - Jacob Michael Simper, 3, of Houston passed away Sunday, May 30, 2010. Jacob was born June 20, 2006 in Corpus Christi to Cody and Joanna Simper.
      Jacob was a superhero, not unlike Spiderman, only better. He loved sports and enjoyed a game of "catch" with his dad and older brother Luke. He loved to run and accepted all challengers in a foot-race, though he ran as fast as his little legs would carry him, he didn't often win, but he'd race again and try to win just the same, because he was a superhero. Jacob slept in his own room, but most mornings he would be found in his older brother's bedroom asleep in his bed, probably because his superhero senses told him to crawl in with his brother to protect him from the night. Jacob liked to wrestle in the house with his dad and brother Luke, but Jacob let them win, he was a superhero. Jacob had a heart warming smile made brighter still with sparkling blue eyes and an abundance of personality, all traits of a proper superhero. Jacob adored his older brother, seldom leaving his side and sharing and playing throughout each day and protecting him with superhero talents whenever necessary. But even Jacob, with all his many gifts and greatness was humbled from his mother's love; he knew of all things, he was his momma's boy first.
      Jacob is survived by his mom and dad, Joanna and Cody Simper of Houston; his best friend and brother, Luke Ryan Simper, all of Houston; grandparents, Donna Lynn Simper, Michael and Sherry Simper, all of Gonzales, Rebecca Ellen and Mitchell P. Engle of Mt. Vernon; great-grandparents, Bea and Clarence Bohuslav of Moulton, Margie and Willie Simper of Gonzales, and Marjorie Roscoe of Corpus Christi; and numerous adoring aunts, uncles and cousins.
      A rosary will be recited at 7 p.m. today in Seydler-Hill Funeral Home with a Mass of the Angels at 10 a.m. Friday May 4, 2010 in St. James Catholic Church with Father Paul Raaz officiating. Interment will follow in St. James Catholic Cemetery.  Pallbearers: Roland Gonzalez, Oscar Lujan, Bobby Avant and Brian Lookabill.
